Sometimes there is a front and mid one-ways available on Ebay.
Otherwise get the HPI new at Tower HObbies

rmac - where on earth did you get the penguin thing from?

Hara was using a prototype car at the pre-worlds - i believe there were both shaft and belt versions in use.

And like newracer said, a lot of the world's top drivers were there for at least a couple of days, except the associated team.

Running one-ways on a dusty slippery track is not recommended. You will lose a lot of traction. It is best to use one-ways on prepared high traction tracks. You are better off with full time 4WD. The HB upperdeck may not be neccessary. Leave the flex in at first and race with it. If you don't have enough traction add the upper deck or run softer tires and inserts.

I would always reccommend an upper deck, because they'll keep the main belt running truer and more efficiently.

Default Prototype Pro4

It's not hard to see that the batteries are situated on the left side of the car and that the motor is planted in the middle right side.

Correct me if I am wrong.

looks like a tc3 except it doesnt look like the motor is facing the back. it looks like it is facing the side of the batteries. maybe that is the belt drive version.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

sosidge - The pics on Orion's site of Hara's pre worlds car (belt drive version) looks very much like a Penquin chasis.
And now he wins the TC Masters race with a shaft drive car?
TC3 copy maybe?
And yes, newracer,this time he did have some competition.

I can't wait to see a clear picture of the car. My suggestion is that HPI doesn't let Xray get too good a look at the car. We all know what Xray does with other people's new car designs! LOL j/k

Anyway, I wonder when HPI will give the world a peek. Hara does indeed seem to be doing quite well with the car whether hes using the belt version or the shaft version.

newracer: Thats a bold prediction your making there!

I don't care how much they try to hide it, if it were to win the worlds, someone would get a clear picture of it!
